Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Brokedown Palace?

I have a degenerative form of MS, and things have been real hard, so hard I am planning my funeral out. I know, too morbid, but it is more of a journey for my wife, daughters (3) , family and some of my closest friends. I am going to send them to about a dozen sites that I have seen. For example: give them the coordinates to a beautiful cliff side in Calgary that over looks a valley and mountains for miles and miles, and in the other direction, a little bit of Mountain valley, then the wide expanse of Alberta plains. I will have a tape (old school)
with various bits of music, with a Dead song to close it out. Somev notes will be attached telling my story of that spot, antidotes of other events, and such.

Now, I am at a loss here for Brokedown Palace. There are many beautiful versions of it, but I am having great trouble getting the 'One' . Also note thst this song is one of favorite songs I have ever heard. I am wanting to pair it up with the 2md movement of Beethoven's 9th, which is strange pairing, but what the hell, wierd is good enough, right?

So if someone has a soulful, gut-wrenching version they could recommend to me and a link to it, thank you.

My condolences on your situation but I applaud your taking control of your situation.

I have been a Hospice volunteer for 6 years and this is exactly what the folks who have had the best experience with the making this most difficult time bearable for themselves and their families.

I agree with the room for the most part, The studio version is so beautiful. I could also recommend 3 more pieces from the Beauty album, Attics, Ripple and Box. I have had the pleasure and pain of listening to all 4 during memorial or funeral services, seems each has its ability to sooth pain and invoke Light & Beauty in dark times.

I invite you to reach out if you want to talk about anything with someone who has spent a great deal of time with folks who have made this Great Journey. I am happy to send you my email or phone number and you can contact me anytime.

I will put you on my support prayer list if you like too, I try to send LIGHT and Love to my friends twice a day, asking those who are able to send Light from the other dimensions to Light your path.

Cool Runnins!(Peace be the journey)

My thoughts prayers, and hopes go with you and your family. It is truly a beautiful thing that you are doing, in an effort to close these memories. I do believe that your assistance in easing the transition that they are experiencing is a truly selfless, and marvelous thing.

I hope that all your (as well as all of our) remaining days are peaceful, painless, and full of love.

I find this lovely acoustic rendition to be very emotive and poigniant, but at the same time still optimistic. And Jer even says "see you later" at the conclusion as it is a set closer.

Peace to you and your family on your journey...

I concur with CLIFF. However, if it's the case that many "non HEADs" will be there, you might consider the studio version. I think that one defn gets the job done, and if the tunes are for these others, their exposure level might influence your choice (not that 9-20 is somehow a poor quality one).

It sounds as if it will be a nice way for your friends and family to experience what you found valuable...

May your journey and theirs find peace in each day's home

T -

Peace to you and your family on your journey.

Now in the interest of full disclosure, I totally ripped this off of "Tuesday's With Morrie" by Mitch Albom.

Have your funeral while you are still alive..... Think about it - what happens at funerals? A bunch of friends and family get together and reminisce and say nice things about you. Then you have a lot of good food and drink and discussion with people you haven't seen in years.

Why shouldn't you be there to enjoy it?

12/19/94 - Superb 'Brokedown', check out "Days Between" also.

Sorry to hear about your circumstances.

Thoughts and Prayers for you and your family.

I don't have a recommendation for you, but do tend to agree with WT on the studio version.
